In 2019 the City launched a new free community festival, Hello Manning. The two day celebration featured live music and entertainment, unique art experiences, activations by local community groups and businesses, and a family outdoor movie night, family friendly games and activity zones including a teen chill out zone.
A selection of food trucks was accompanied by the Hello Manning long table luncheon tent. Temporary art installations featured Andy Faraday’s Dark Truck interactive Unselfie Project and ANTaR’s (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander advocacy organisation) Hello project.
Hello Manning was held at the Manning Community Centre and James Miller Oval, 2 Conochie Cres, Manning from 4-9pm, Saturday 30 March 2019 and 10am-3pm, Sunday 31 March 2019. Follow #hellomanning on Instagram or Facebook.

Manning Library will host a family-friendly scavenger hunt called "Bibliotrek" on Sunday 31 March 2019 as part of the Hello Manning free community festival.
